Special Needs Information

From September 2014, the Children and Families Act 2014 became law. A key element of the Act is the Local Offer (LO) which provides information to children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities aged 0-25 and their families about services and support in the local area. Links to key documents can be found below.

Gateshead SEND Thresholds
Please use the link below to download the new SEND Thresholds document, which is the Local Area's response to meeting the SEND Code of Practice (2015) Graduated Approach and the DfE SEND Improvement Plan launched by the DfE on 2 March 2023.
This builds on best practice nationally and will shape the Graduated Approach at all settings 0-25. 
Gateshead Council have recognised the importance of the young person and the family voice with particular respect to those children and young people with additional needs and hence there is a section in the Thresholds supporting the young people and family voice.
